by

We are a people in the process of progress; we have not yet crossed the finish line. Forgiveness enables us to glorify God in our local church.

Finding Your Role in God’s Big Project

by

“We have to find our role in God’s big project, the one that stretches across the border from this life into the next.” (Cornelius Plantinga Jr.) In this message from Nehemiah 1, guest speaker John Waldrop teaches how revival came to God’s people through the obedience of Nehemiah, and the example it gives to the church today.

Sola Gratia (Grace Alone)

by

This month marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, and we are taking some time to focus on the doctrines of the Five Solas that emerged during this time.

The Conquering Reign of Grace, Part 1

by

God’s grace is greater than all our sin. It is greater than the condemnation our sin merits, greater than the enslavement our sin creates, and it covers whatever spiritual debt our sin incurs in our lives. Pastor Ritch teaches the astonishing truth of that statement in this two-part message from Romans 5:20-6:2.

Grace Abounds

by

Our world was created in a state of purity and innocence, but that perfection was ruined the moment Adam sinned in the garden of Eden. We cannot turn back the clock on his (and our own) mistakes and failures, but does this mean we will never regain paradise? In this message from Romans 5:12-21, Dr. Ritch Boerckel contrasts the disobedience of Adam with the life-giving obedience of Jesus.
